Hitachi Data Systems Announces Enhanced Integration With VMware Solutions, Debuts All-Flash Systems to Enable Digital Transformation

New Support for VMware NSX, Docker Containers and Enhanced VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes Strengthens Converged and Hyperconverged Portfolio to Automate IT, Improve Security and Enable Application Continuity

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - August 25, 2016) - Hitachi Data Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501), is now offering a new series of solutions designed for the software-defined data center, empowering customers to realize the full power of digital transformation, which requires a modern, agile IT environment in order to take advantage of cloud, open-source and emerging technologies to deliver reliable IT services.

The company today announced support for VMware NSX network virtualization platform, which when combined with the trusted family of high-performance converged and hyperconverged infrastructure systems from Hitachi Data Systems provides a solid foundation for powering solutions that customers can build upon with confidence. Now, Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) customers will benefit from NSX, which will help automate deployment of applications with complete networking services and advanced network virtualization capabilities. NSX helps them improve security with microsegmentation and granular security policy enforcement. Hitachi Data Systems has entered into an OEM agreement whereby the company will sell VMware NSX for use with Hitachi Unified Compute Platform.

In addition, the recently announced Hitachi Unified Compute Platform HC V240 (UCP HC) hyperconverged system, powered by VMware Virtual SAN, now supports Docker container technology to provide a robust platform for both traditional and cloud-native applications. Organizations can significantly improve application agility and accelerate the transition toward hybrid cloud.

And, with the debut of all-flash versions of UCP 4000, UCP 4000E, UCP 2000 and UCP HC V240F, Hitachi now offers all-flash configurations across its entire portfolio of converged and hyperconverged infrastructure platforms, to deliver powerful performance for enterprise applications and help customers move to an all-flash data center. Hitachi's hyperconverged solution, UCP HC V240F, powered by VMware Virtual SAN software-defined storage, helps organizations reduce costs and eliminate management complexity, while delivering high performance.

Significant enhancements have also been made to Hitachi's support for VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes to provide high availability, better performance, simplified storage management and control for virtualized environments.
